Description: City officials will meet with community residents to discuss the Barry Farm Transformation Plan. The neighborhood was previously awarded a HUD Choice Planning Grant (view presentation here), and the Transformation Plan will be submitted to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development to compete for a Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant.
The Transformation Plan focuses on three core areas:
- People: Support positive outcomes for families with a special focus on health, safety, employment, mobility and education
- Housing: Transform housing into energy efficient, mixed-income housing that is physically and financially viable over the long term.
- Neighborhood: Foster neighborhood development with access to well-functioning services, high quality education, early learning programs, public transportation, and new jobs.
